Our health is very important to us and to those who are nearest us.  The following links provide information on ways you can maintain and improve your physical and emotional health, including diet, exercise, drinking, smoking, coping with stress and anxiety, etc.  You can use the information available via these links to monitor aspects of your health/diet, and to take action to improve it. 

If you have any concerns about your health you may find the NHS Choices site a useful source of information and advice. It includes a very helpful tool that enables you to access health advice specific to your symptoms, accessed through the 'Check your Symptoms' tab.

Within the University we have the Centre for Physical Recreation and Sport and facilities such as the Cycle to Work scheme, which all staff can join, to encourage exercise.  Our campus catering outlets all offer healthy eating options, and we support employees’ health directly via our Occupational Health Service.  There are also links to many external health promotion sites.
